MOVIE REVIEW: EXPRESSWAY (Ato Bautista, 2016)

A2576CAE-4389-4869-BC1C-0BB9213D6D2B

This was Bautista channeling his inner Tarantino. I loved the play on light and darkness and shadows, but you could smell the movie’s twist a mile away. This was still On the Job na ber ber lite.

At least Aljur Abrenica finally stepped out of his Machete mode and acted alive for once. I wonder what Joel Torre and JM de Guzman could have done in the lead roles, though.

Rating: ★★★☆☆
